Here at EuroBoutique, we are not just a vendor but also true NSX owners that are always looking for ways to improve the car....this is a never ending ordeal as we want make products that first and foremost we would use in our personal cars. We would never sell something we don't give our stamp of approval!

In the custom fabrication world you can do a lot of crazy things but sometimes it works out, sometimes it does not. For our 2004 GPW NSX we built a custom fiberglass box for a JL 8" subwoofer. You can see more info here:

It looks decent, sounds amazing, however it still impedes into the passenger compartment so we are going back to the drawing board....Although it looks decent and hidden, you lose about 4" of legroom and that is not great if you have a tall passenger. As one of our friends will attest to while riding with us during NSXPO Portland on a extended test drive, there is still too much space taken up and his legs cramped up at the end of the 2+ hr drive! Lol


So our latest project is to dig deep and create a super thin subwoofer box to house the JL Audio 6w3 woofer. The goal is to make this a drop in box for ANY NSX. As you guys know certain model year cars have a ECU behind the oem subwoofer. Most of the time you have to relocate this item to gain space. We are going for max depth so the passenger won’t even know there is a subwoofer.

The goal is to use every mm of space and build a truly hand built enclosure that forms around every nook and cranny of the factory footwell. The idea is to lose virtually NO SPACE or LEG ROOM. The only way this can be achieved is to really form the box to use up all the air space.

here are some photos of the build process:

If all goes well, we will be selling this subwoofer box on a per order basis. Cost wise has not yet been determined but it will be similar to our s2000 box which you can see here on our website:

Here are some finished photos!

Good news is we were able to save 4.5" from the previous 8" subwoofer box design! You can see the carpet indentation marked by the blue line for the old box.


Even better news is ZERO carpet cutting and if you happen to own of the NSX's with the ECU behind the footwell like ours , it does NOT need to be moved so it's truly plug and play for all model year NSX's!


See the pics below and feel free to ask any questions, you can purchase at this link:

Blue tape shows where the old previous box sat:




Saved 4.5" in depth!






ECU remains in stock location, no need to move:




Wife / Passenger will be happy again:

That's a nice alternative. I wish you had it available at the 1st of the year before I bought the SoS box. I hated having to cut the 4 mounting plates on the floor and loosing my glovebox space. I would switch to your new slim box if returning my footwell/glovebox to stock wasn't so difficult. My only criticism would be matching the carpet covering with stock and that's the EPS box, not the ECU.

We have so many projects in different stages of priority and R&D, this one just sorta sneaked up on us! :)


The 4 tabs can be installed back on the car, it's not a detrimental structural issue so what we suggest is just keep them in a zip lock bag for future reference.

Our subwoofer box was meant for a literally no nonsense drop in fitment. Our goal is to have a video made later next month showing how his setup works and the sound is AMAZING!!!!

The carpet we use is a grey mix that is pretty close to the factory. It will never be the same match but it really is not that crucial since the OEM floor mat is meant to go over the subwoofer setup anyways. If you wanted to show it, a beauty trim ring can be fabricated by a local stereo shop and finished off in OEM carpet material if you can source it from a 3rd party.

Just wanted to give an update 6/14/22:

We are currently building these subwoofer units as fast as possible for existing orders. The delay is from JL Audio as it seems they have a shortage of subwoofers so lead times could be longer than normal. (also keep in mind JL Audio has increased prices 3 times already this past year!)

Be sure to visit our website for all the pricing and latest pictures here:
